On Thursday 23 January, representatives from the four resident Orchestra’s at Southbank Centre, piled into a conference room along with an incalculable number of journalists to find out what was in store for the 2014-2015 Season.  After a decent amount of coffeee, orange juice and pastries, we all took a seat and listened as Southbank Centre Artistic Director Jude Kelly hinted at what lay in store.

You are invited to a Royal Flute Lesson

Mon 28 Feb 2011

Our pre-concert ‘OAE Extras’ event at the Queen Elizabeth Hall this week is an extra special one – a reconstruction of a Royal Flute Lesson. The event is the brainchild of Principal Flute Lisa Beznosiuk and Sub-Principal Neil McLaren, and as well as being a good excuse for them to dress up, it also redresses the fact that there are no flutes in the evening’s concert!

CPE Bach (whose music is featured in the following concert at 7pm) worked in the court of Frederick the Great and the event features music as well as drama, including CPE Bach’s Trio Sonata.

In the video below Lisa and Neil talk about the event, after a run though they had done at our offices. Do come and join us for the lesson this Thursday, 5.45pm at the Queen Elizabeth Hall – after all, it’s not every day that you get a Royal invite!
